Project Title: Development of a novel prime-boost vaccination regime for treatment of pancreatic cancer

Project Aims: Building on his previous PCRF-funded project, which modified common viruses to specifically infect and kill pancreatic cancer cells, Dr Wang’s new project aims to show how combining this ‘virotherapy’ approach with drugs that boost the immune system’s activity will help to kill any pancreatic cancer cells left in the body following surgery to remove tumours - and could prevent the disease from recurring.
